YES……. I said it. Throw away money to build your business. Of course I don’t mean throw away REAL money, but using “Dropcards” for your business. Later I will post videos on different uses of dropcards, that have worked for me and that I have learned from other people. Feel free to view my other blogs on the different uses of dropcards, by clicking on the “Dropcard” or “Sizzlecard” tags on the right. Creativity plays a key part in marketing with them, so have fun.
Drop cards and sizzle cards are great tools to use for exposing your business.
What better way to promote your business than to just walk around handing out money! This is what the sales industry refers to as a sizzle card, and our dollar bill cards are very effective sizzle cards. Imagine the look on someone’s face when you reach into your wallet and pull out, what appears to be, a $100 dollar bill and pass it over while saying something like, “This is just the beginning! I can show you how to make at least 25 more of these per month in your spare time!” Do you think that will grab their attention immediately???
Many people also use these effectively as drop cards. Drop cards are cards that you would leave behind after sitting at a table or bench in a public place, drop one on the ground in a crowded area, or leave anywhere where people gather and watch as people scramble to pick up your business message. Try that with your regular business card! Imagine yourself on your daily run of errands and chores, or even your leisure time placing 25, 50, even 100 of these drop cards around town. If your advertisement is targeting the right audience, imagine yourself hurrying back to your office to retrieve all your messages off your voice mail and checking your email for order confirmations!!!
There are many places that offer this same marketing tool. I use these drop/sizzle cards because they are inexpensive, effective and delivered in a reasonable time.
